Starting a home renovation of any size can be daunting. From renovating a bathroom to adding an addition to your home, there are many moving parts all going at the same time. Hiring electricians, carpenters, plumbers, painters, inspectors, drywallers, just to name a few. That doesn’t even include permits, purchasing supplies, renting heavy equipment, time. Of course there is always the option of doing it all yourself, but that can take at least double the amount of time, and leaves a lot of room for errors. Home renovations don’t have to be stressful. You’re already turning your life upside down by tearing apart your house, don’t add the extra stress of doing it alone.
When it comes to a home improvement project, think of yourself as the CEO. You get to make all the final decisions. You want updates, you want everything to go smoothly, and you want things to get done efficiently, but you also have every other aspect of your “company” (or household) to run as well. That’s why you hire a COO (chief operating officer). The COO is in charge of making sure that day to day operations get done so that you can focus on other aspects of the company. That’s what a home improvement contractor does! There are a lot of big decisions that need to be made about a project that aren’t important to the homeowner, like what kind of wood is used for the subflooring.
A contractor may seem like a huge financial commitment. Doing a project yourself may seem like a better investment, but DIY projects almost always end up taking more time, money, and effort than anticipated. When you hire a contractor, they know how to plan and manage resources for unexpected twists and turns. Big projects always throw curveballs, especially when it comes to plumbing and electrics. A simple bathroom remodel could cause your entire house to flood from one little mistake. On average, it can take at least forty days for homeowner’s insurance to pay for flood damage, if they cover it at all. A contractor would guarantee that things are done by skilled, trained professionals so that mistakes are less likely to happen.
